Employers with special needs ie children with disabilities - congenital not eligible for $120 subsidy yet had to face more constraints and unfairness. I dont't mind give off days but how come need to fork out extra $80-120 per month? Shouldn't maids take lesser pay for wanting to rest?
If maid takes 4 off days, it means we are paying more and have 4 times more unfair obligations. Pay more means MOM will protect us? NO!! We continue pay levy every month without fail and fulfil employers' obligations 4 times more for medical costs and the cost of sending maids home due to exceptional circumstances - repatriation (eg runaway, steal, abuse our beloved ones, maid has dreadful disease or illness) that employers have no control over or at fault, totally unaware, usually fault of agency or maid herself.
What happened to employer's well-being, especially my case? Forced to hire a maid cos no special needs daycare centre in Sg for low IQ children & youths. Why make me rely on maid - my only choice if chose to work?
